Electric smell, lamp assembly screw wont fit

If you removed the screws, they should be reinserted in the same fashion as when they were removed. One thing to remember, over heating can change the sockets overall condition and using it could lead to a fire in the long run. It sounds like the contact between the lamp (Bulb) and the fixtures base has a gap. Electrical sparks (arcing) will smell and thus is a danger calling out, shut me down.

I'm interested in an inside elevator for my grandparents

Are you referring to an actual elevator or the stairs lift?
Elevators are much more expensive than the stairs lifts. Of course they have to be wide enough with the right curve.

Testing photo cell

These devices typically require a minute or two to change state from ON to OFF when the the threshold of light and darkness is reached. Place black electrical tape over the sensor and allow a minute for it to turn the light on. Make sure that no light shines into the sensor or that the sensor can not see light in the night time.

Lastly, double check instructions and wiring. White should be connected to BOTH the neutral incoming power AND the light fixture's white wire(s). Most times, black is 120V source, and red is the switched 120V out to the fixture.

If it isn't working, make sure the lamps are good. This photocell is suitable for use with compact fluorescent lamps, fluorescent lamps and other fixtures that use ballasts and transformers as long as they do not require more than 840 VA.

Good luck!

Fluorescent lights will not come on. There is power to the ballest.

Power to the ballast is good. The power you checked is known as the primary power. The secondary power from the ballast (transformer), should be around 600 volts. This 600 volts is what vaporizes the gas in the fluorescent lamp. Go to home depot and buy a magnetic field tester (we call it a thumper) It has a shirt pocket clip on it. Do not insert the thumper in the fixture lamp sockets, just put it in front of one of the light fixture sockets. It should beep and the light on the magnetic field tester (thumper) should come on if you have a magnetic field in the light fixture socket. This means that the light fixture ballast secondary is working. No beep and no light from the magnetic field tester (thumper) means your ballast is bad. Ballast are dangerous to replace. Have an electrician replace it. Your life is not worth losing over saving a few dollars.

Extra blue wire what is it for

48" light fixtures come in single lamp, two lamps, and four lamps. The ballast must match the supply voltage and the amount of lamps the fixture has.
